668: Tipping | Skeptical Sunday

Tipping isn't a city in China. But it is a shameful institution that encourages racism, sexism, harassment, and exploitation of low-income workers while placing the burden of compensation on customers instead of business owners. If most restaurants and service-based industries in the world can exist without relying on tipping, why does the custom persist in the United States, and what would be a fairer, more sustainable alternative? Welcome to Skeptical Sunday, a special edition of The Jordan Harbinger Show where Jordan and fact-checker, comedian, and podcast host [David C. Smalley] (https://www.davidcsmalley.com/) break down a topic that you may have never thought about, open things up, and debunk common misconceptions. Full show notes and resources can be found here: [jordanharbinger.com/668] (https://jordanharbinger.com/668) On This Week's Skeptical Sunday, We Discuss: ---The federal minimum wage for tipped workers is $2.13 per hour -- the same as it was 31 years ago (though it can be even less in some states under certain circumstances). Why is it the customer&rsquo;s responsibility to pay these workers a fair wage? ---Why, contrary to the protests of whoever happens to be holding the purse strings, raising the minimum wage for the person serving you will not make your burger cost $25. ---How tipped workers are still expected to fulfill untipped tasks during their "down" time, but without a raise in compensation to make up for it. ---Why the institution of tipping encourages racism, sexism, harassment, and exploitation of low-income workers. ---How the custom of tipping came about, why it persists in places like the United States, and what we should be doing to replace it with something that would better serve the server and served, alike. ---Connect with Jordanon [Twitter] (https://twitter.com/JordanHarbinger) , on [Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/jordanharbinger) , and on [YouTube] (https://www.youtube.com/c/THEJORDANHARBINGERSHOW) .

664: Reiki Healing | Skeptical Sunday

Is Reiki -- the not-so-ancient Japanese energy healing technique by which your psychic empath aunt swears -- a legitimate way to treat ailments like cancer, diabetic neuropathy, anxiety, lactose intolerance, and cooties? Or is it nothing more than a placebo that, at best, might offer you a relaxing way to spend an hour of your day -- and a day of your savings? Here on Skeptical Sunday, it's all hands on deck to discover the truth about the controversial practice of Reiki healing. Welcome to Skeptical Sunday, a special edition of The Jordan Harbinger Show where Jordan and fact-checker, comedian, and podcast host [David C.

663: Thinking of Another Dude: Is Marriage Screwed? | Feedback Friday

Celebrating only the second anniversary with your wonderful husband, you've found yourself wondering what life might be like if you'd, instead, pursued a relationship with a certain unrequited crush. Does having these thoughts make you an unfaithful, horrible person, or is this a normal adjustment to married life -- for better or for worse? We'll try to find answers to this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger ( [@JordanHarbinger] (https://twitter.com/JordanHarbinger) ) and Gabriel Mizrahi ( [@GabeMizrahi] (https://twitter.com/GabeMizrahi) ) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

How can you safely move forward without losing your business entirely? ---You feel obligated to be there for a new friend who's going through some tough times, but you're concerned that some of your own negativity may be residual from this friendship. Should you stay in their life and risk your own mental health to be the voice of reason, or would it be best just to cut them out of your life entirely? ---You're resentful that your peer got the promotion you wanted and is now your direct manager, and you feel like your manager isn't trying hard enough to help you get ahead. Should you raise a stink about the unfairness of it all, or learn from this teachable moment and grin and bear it until your next review? ---Have any questions, comments, or stories you'd like to share with us?

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a chemtrail of dihydrogen monoxide, known to cause suffocation as well as accelerated corrosion in certain circumstances, and now it's in the very air you're breathing! But to what end?

If so, to what end? ---If we're supposed to believe so-called chemtrails are just condensation-created contrails, why did a weatherman admit on live television that the military was spraying chemicals into the atmosphere? ---If chemtrails are just contrails, why are there sometimes breaks in the streams?

Your father's never been abusive, but you were recently disheartened when he referred to a child sexual assault survivor and advocate who's been in the news lately as a "media-hungry slut." And when you brought up how this made you feel to your mother, she dismissively suggested you should just let it go because he's always been supportive of you.

Here's a deep dive into how to quit your job the right way. What We Discuss: ---The important questions to ask before making the commitment to quit your job. ---How to break the news to your employer in the right order. ---How to set your team up for success long after you've made your exit. ---Why you should take the time to craft a great goodbye email to your peers, and what you might say. ---How to make quitting a transition to a new phase of your relationship with former employers and colleagues rather than a final farewell -- and why you should stay close and connected long past the time you've collected your last paycheck. ---And much more...

639: Dealing with Your Darling's DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) | Feedback Friday

Your significant other has DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder), a mental health condition where a person has two or more separate identities. These personalities, or &ldquo;alters&rdquo; control the person&rsquo;s behavior at different times, and each alter often has its own history, traits, likes, and dislikes. It's a very complex disorder &mdash; one that clinicians are still coming to understand &mdash; and it makes relationships quite hard. So what can you do to be supportive to your loved one as well as yourself? We'll try to find an answer to this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger ( [@JordanHarbinger] (https://twitter.com/JordanHarbinger) ) and Gabriel Mizrahi ( [@GabeMizrahi] (https://twitter.com/GabeMizrahi) ) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at [friday@jordanharbinger.com] (mailto:friday@jordanharbinger.com) . Now let's dive in! Full show notes and resources can be found here: [jordanharbinger.com/639] (https://jordanharbinger.com/639) On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: <ul> <li>What can you do to empower your significant other as she struggles with DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder), while ensuring you're not neglecting your own needs in the process??</li> <li>You never took the chance to communicate with someone you matched with on a dating app a few years back, but now you see them on LinkedIn and would like to make a networking connection. How can you do so without being awkward about it?</li> <li>You're losing respect for the person you once saw as future spouse material because their tendency to procrastinate is derailing and delaying their academic and career paths and straining your finances. On top of the frustration this makes you feel, you've recently been diagnosed with bipolar II. How do you walk the line between being caring partner while also maintaining your own mental health and financial well-being?</li> <li>You're only 16 years old, and your dad's work has relocated your family 10 times. You've never really settled anywhere long enough to build strong friendships or feel like you can call anywhere "home" until you arrived at your current residence. Now, it's your mother who's rallying to move again after some disagreements with the neighbors. What can you do to convince your parents to come to an agreement with the neighbors and just stay put?</li> <li>Your grandmother has always been verbally and physically abusive to your mom, going as far as faking heart attacks whenever the inheritance your grandfather left behind when he passed away 30 years ago is brought up. You think the healthiest thing to do would be to cut her out of your life completely, but your mother pleads with you to maintain a connection. What's the right call here?</li> <li>Have any questions, comments, or stories you'd like to share with us?
